Tinubu reconciles CPC factions

12 February 2013, 16:05

Abuja - National Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, on Monday met with factions of the Congress for Progressives Change in Abuja.

After the meeting, the factions agreed to settle the crisis that had been rocking the CPC.

According to them, they agreed to sheath their swords in the interest of the newly formed Action of Progressives Change.

Senator Rufai Hanga said he was willing to withdrew his suit from the court.

Tinubu also said the formation of the ACP by four opposition parties was in the interest of the nation.

He stated this after meeting with the Hanga faction of the CPC on Monday in Abuja

The CPC, ANPP, ACN and APGA last Thursday merged to form the APC after a long merger talk between the parties.

Tinubu spoke with newsmen after the meeting.

He said the parties were meeting in the interest of the people.

“How do you ask a politician not to meet? We are meeting in the interest of our various objectives. To me, I am working in the interest of Nigeria and particularly in the interest of APC”.

On whether the newly formed party by the opposition would succeed, Tinubu said, “I am a committed individual and we are in a committed group sorrounded by people of vision, conviction and great commitment.

“It would succeed. Our rivals will not want it to succeed; that is part of the political intrigues and environment particularly in Africa, but we will work hard at it in the interest of this country”.
